This is the jumper I am working on for Sam:
It has the cable pattern on both the front and the back and is easy to knit without a cable needle. As you can see from the progress photos I am knitting it in a dark blue. Both the pattern, which is from this book:
and the yarn are from Mum’s stash. There is something about these “old” patterns and I see many of them “redesigned” and touted as new designs. Does anyone know how to tell when they were printed?
I am thinking of knitting up the jumper at the bottom for me but given my attempt to get through all my WIPs and dedicate my attention to a single knitting project I guess it will be for next Winter!
